Southwest Chocolate and Coffee Fest
If classical music isn’t your thing, perhaps you’d be more interested in the Southwest Chocolate and Coffee Fest. This third annual Albuquerque event features some of the finest chocolatiers and baristas in the Southwest. Participate in the Best Barista Latte Art Contest, the Chocolate Eating Contest or the contest for the Best Chocolate Cake or Cookie. There will be plenty of activities for the kids and children 12 and under get in for free!
The 3rd Annual Southwest Chocolate and Coffee Fest will be held Saturday & Sunday, March 23 – 24, at the Expo New Mexico State Fairgrounds. Tickets are $10 and children 12 and under are free.
Too Sexy for My Cage Pet Adoption Event
Our last event is an important one. This time of year adoptable pets abound in our local area shelters and you can help save some of their lives! From Feb 9th to Feb 17th you can adopt a pet over the age of 4, at an Albuquerque shelter, for just $14. The “I’m too sexy for my cage” event is intended to help older pets find great homes. If you’ve been thinking about adding a furry companion to your family, please consider the animals available at your local shelter.
Join us next week for more great Albuquerque events!
